Ferndale Raccoon Removal
We are called to deal with raccoon infestations all of the time. Usually, homeowners find out that they have raccoons only after they have spent a few restless nights wondering what that scratching sound is in the attic. We will come into your home, find the raccoon, remove it, and then clean up and repair any damage it caused. We will also help to seal up any holes that the raccoon used for entry.
Squirrel Removal and Management
Usually squirrels are content to not bother getting into houses and nesting in attics, but sometimes they end up getting into somewhere they shouldn’t. Once they get into your home, they can wreak havoc by trampling insulation, gnawing on wires, and making a lot of noise. We can help to safely remove the squirrels and make sure that they cannot get back into your home.
Ferndale Skunk Removal
In Ferndale, skunks can be a slight issue for homeowners, especially when springtime rolls around. Skunks will burrow into gardens and destroy landscaping. They can also burrow under your deck and allow water to get next to the foundation of your home. Over time, this can erode the foundation and cause a big and expensive problem. Not the mention, if you have a resident skunk, you always have to worry about getting sprayed by the skunk, or about your pets or kids getting sprayed. We can help with this!

As a family owned company, we know that the damaged caused by wildlife can be a huge problem. That is why when we remove animals, we also repair the damage they caused. From replacing insulation and deodorizing to repairing any holes caused by the animals, we will restore your home to pre-animal condition. Additionally, we will take the time to animal proof your home. Our animal proofing is guaranteed for 3 to 5 years and we make sure to close up and seal any and all access points that an animal could enter through. If you suspect that you have nuisance animals, call us today!

How to Get Rid of Squirrels Humanely
Raccoon Trapping Services
To clean the attic, I not only remove all of the waste by hand, I use special cleaners, including an enzyme-based cleaner that eliminates any biohazard organic waste from animals, including droppings and urine. I use the electric powered atomizer as shown in the below photo, which creates a fine mist that flows through the whole attic and gets every nook and cranny, for 100% coverage and cleanup. To protect myself against insulation fibers and animal biohazard, I wear a disposable Tyvek suit and I wear the respirator mask, as shown above. This fogging machine, also called an atomizer, sprays my cleaning solution in a fine mist that permeates the entire attic, and makes certain attic cleanup scenarios easy. In a case like this, in which the homeowner did not want total insulation replacement, the enzyme-based cleaner in the atomizer does a good job of breaking down and sanitizing the contaminated areas of the attic. If your attic has wildlife waste or animal poop, then this is one method that can kill harmful pathogens along with the odor. Homeowner's insurance will pay for attic cleanup and restoration in the case of raccoon damage, because of the potential health risks.
Nuisance animals cause odor problems in a variety of ways. Their excrement is a primary source of odor problems, and often quite noticeable if an animal has taken up residence somewhere in your home. Animal carcasses are another source of odor. Skunks present a whole other dimension in odor problems. I can identify the source of animal odors, and eliminate both the current source of the odor (for example, excrement removal) and the underlying cause (the animal's entry into your home). This work may be covered by homeowners insurance.

Wild animals are a delight to watch except when they are in your backyard or inside your house. Then, they become a nuisance. Nuisance wildlife destabilizes the comfort of your home by altering odors by their urine and feces, making unpleasant noises and even posing a threat to the safety of your family. In such a situation, the best thing is to have professionals come to your home to remove this animals for you. Professional wildlife removers are experienced in the types of traps and bait to use for different animals so that they are caught alive and relocated to their natural habitats in the wild. Enlisting such professional wildlife removal services ensures that you do not encounter legal problems associated with animal cruelty.
While different types of animals have different preference to their choice of habitation, it is certain that they cause damage to the area. Take raccoons, for example. They tear through roofs and insulation and litter your chimney and/ or attic with contaminated feces leaving your home exposed to outward and inward dangers. Professional wildlife removers will usually trap the animals or use hormone treatment to lure the raccoons out. Other wildlife that is likely to be found in chimneys and attics include squirrels, which are notorious for gnawing electrical wires, birds and bats. Bats usually host a number of problems for homeowners including contamination of the air, corrosive droppings that pose health risks and ceiling weakening. If not completely removed, they will infest a house in a few years. Fortunately, bat removal is competently done along with other animal removal services.
Decontamination and Clean Up
Once the animals have been removed, it is important to have that space cleaned up. This includes removal of feces, nesting and dead animals. Professional wildlife removal service also includes 'disinfecting' or using antimicrobial cleaners to decontaminate insulation and dissolve the pungent smell that has been left behind. This is necessary to prevent other animals from being attracted by the odors.
Repairs and Wildlife Exclusion
After an ordeal with nuisance wildlife, chances are that something was damaged. During the cleaning process, the extent of damage can be seen. This will usually be damaged insulation and wires which will need replacement. A lot of times it is important that new pest control insulation is installed for future animal control. Wildlife exclusion is then done to keep wildlife from accessing your home. It includes sealing off entry holes, vents, chimneys and decks. The best materials should be those that the animals cannot chew, break or dig through.
